Easy track
Starting from the end of Springbrook Road, Springbrook, this return walk takes you to the Goomoolahra(Bilbrough) Falls and a nearby lookout overlooking Gold Coast, via a concrete footpath all the way. You’ll feel quite small as you're looking over the falls and towards the Gold Coast in the distance. The crisp views of the dense forest blanketing the hills and mountains of Springbrook are easily worth the short trip. You may not be able to see the skyscrapers over at Surfers Paradise on a foggy day, but it surely makes the experience more mysterious and cinematic. With a paved track and a nice little picnic area with BBQs and sheltered tables, this can make for a great family trip. Unfortunately, you will have to leave your dog behind. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
